Pauline studied architecture at Newcastle University and the University of Westminster. She gained professional experience in London and the USA before joining Allies and Morrison in 1989. She became a Director in 2001 and a Partner in 2008. Since 2016 Pauline has held a Director role with a particular commitment to design quality.
Pauline led the team responsible for the practice’s own studio building at 85 Southwark Street, the RIBA London Building of the Year in 2004. She also guided the design of Rambert Dance Company’s new home on the South Bank, a project which won an RIBA National Award in 2014. The transformation of St Thomas the Apostle College in Southwark involved a balance of new build and work to existing buildings. An RIBA London Regional Award winner in 2015, the jury described the project as ‘a real exemplar of what good architecture can bring to school design.’ Also that year, Pauline led our competition-winning team at Stratford Waterfront, a new neighbourhood on the edge of the Olympic Park creating venues for Sadler’s Wells, UAL’s London College of Fashion, The Victoria & Albert Museum and new homes, retail space and high-quality public realm.
Several of Pauline’s projects have involved sensitive insertion into or adjacent to heritage buildings, her design solutions exemplifying Allies and Morrison’s ability to achieve frankly modern and architectural solutions which are nonetheless deeply contextual.
Pauline is currently involved in the design of three projects under construction within the City of London – a mixed use commercial development which includes a 40-storey tower at 100 Bishopsgate; adjacent office space at 15 St Helen’s Place; and the renewal of the public realm at CityPoint.
